Frans Indongo Trust
The Frans Indongo Trust was established in 1987 to manage its Funds and ensure the sustainability thereof, to oversee the conduct of and governance by the Trustees, and to perform various corporate social investment activities on behalf of the Group.
The Trust’s philanthropic activities center on education and entrepreneurship – activities that Dr. Frans Indongo values as pivotal for Namibians to rise out of poverty and to contribute to the nation’s socioeconomic profile.
Although Frans Indongo learned much of this business skill and acumen from “the school of life”, he is a strong believer in quality education and its ‘equalizing’ effect. Moreover, he is a perfect example of the power of entrepreneurship. From his humble beginnings in the late 1950s to building a business empire with a national footprint that creates jobs for close to 500 Namibians, he has demonstrated the socioeconomic impact that entrepreneurs have the potential to create. It is against this backdrop that the Trust will continue empowering Namibian people and communities.
